This year, Wayland Union High School Student Council member, Dillon Kelly, brought the idea of recycling Crayola markers to the WUS Administration. Pat Velie, Director of Finance and Operation signed up for the program and is now ready to send in the first box of markers for recycling. Each school had a designated box in the workroom to collect the worn out markers. Crayola supplies the return box and pays for the shipping to return them for recycling.
The district has made recycling an initiative and has recycled over 14 tons in the last two years, now adding markers to the list of things that do not go into a landfill. WUS currently recycles paper, plastic, cardboard, metal and glass.
